I had a few very ripe bananas to use up so I went in search of a fun new recipe to make. I found this recipe on Dragon’s Kitchen and couldn’t resist making them and I am so glad I did. They were a huge hit with everyone, especially my kids. My son and I had a great time baking these muffins together and he had an even better time gobbling them up. I will be making these again and again.
Banana, Blueberry, and Lemon Muffins:
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 1/2 cups of blueberries
- 2 tbsp grated lemon zest, divided
- 3 tbsp sugar
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of lemon zest together in a small bowl.
Using an electric mixer, beat together the bananas, eggs, brown sugar, melted butter, lemon juice, and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined then carefully add 1 cup of blueberries and gently mix together. Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries evenly over the tops of each muffin, making sure to push them down a bit.
Combine the sugar and remaining tablespoon of lemon zest together and sprinkle evenly on top of each muffin.
Place into the oven and bake for 25-27 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for a few minutes. Enjoy.
